The Dutch Institute for Alcohol Policy (STAP) organizes their second international conference on Alcohol and Health on Friday, October 3, 2014 in Amsterdam. The title of the conference is: ‘Alcohol, Health and Policy’.
In the plenary part, leading scientists present the latest findings on the health burden of alcohol consumption in Europe and the Netherlands, the impact of alcohol consumption on the onset of e.g. cancer and brain diseases, and on methods of early detection of harmful alcohol consumption.
In the afternoon, workshops are dedicated to the application of this knowledge in practice. These sessions focus on healthcare professionals such as physicians, nurses, staff working in addiction (session 1), project coordinators, local policy makers and regulators (session 2), and those involved in national and European alcohol policy (session 3).
